1. Well...
I liked every single Dem that dropped out better than either of them, and I like Gore best of all.But I prefer Obama - what I do find distasteful is the racism that has crept in - I really thought the Democratic Party was better than that.

2. Of the two, I'd go for Obama.
I think there's a chance that he'll be too much like Blair. But, then again, we KNOW that Hillary will be too much like Blair.

4. Yes, he reminds me of the Blessed Tone, too -
comes out of nowhere and he's gonna change the world. Then, of course, really fucks things up.

3. Marginally Obama
I don't like either of the candidates though, but still either of those are far preferable to a McCain Presidency.

The important thing is having a Dem President working with a Dem Congress.

5. I don't really mind, so long as they win
Edited on Sun Mar-16-08 07:21 AM by LeftishBrit
I think that realistically ANY Dem candidate with a chance of winning is going to be more conservative and 'Blairite' than I care for. Both Clinton and Obama would probably be centrist-to-moderate-conservative in the context of many Europaean countries. But either would be INFINITELY better than McInsane.

6. When Dennis left the race, I stopped caring
Because now, like the movie slogan says: Whoever wins, we lose

8. Isn't it a question of how much we lose by?

9. I dont like either of them.

I particularly don't like Obama. I also particularly don't like Hilary. It's difficult to tell which one I dislike least.

However, as has been said before, at least they aren't lunatics.

10. Does it matter
I fear that the Democrats are going to be so obsessed with their internal wrangling that Mcain will win. You can already see the warning signs in the petty bickering between the rival candidates supporters that has already overtaken the DU boards.
